Do the Ocun draws come with biners or are they just the draws on their own?

The ocun draws come with the biners and slings.

Howie, the reason you didn't sell these in January when you last tried was that you are pricing them too high. For example, the ATC Guide & Mini Pearabiner you are offering for $40 can be bought from Steve at Rock Hardware for $25 (ATC) + $13 (BD Rock Lock) - ie $2 cheaper, and he is a genuine retailer with a history of delivering - not some guy who registered just to sell stuff to us.

$10 per draw is a pretty good price, though.

Really? Would you pay $10 for a five year old basic draw? Mountain Designs has 20% off Black Diamond in the Melbourne city store atm so I could get a brand new Positron draw for $16.

I know what I'd buy, especially since I'd think about putting new dogbones on five year old drawers with unknown history.

that harness is available cheap in lots of places now because petzl brought out new models as well.

And I wouldn't pay $10 for a 5yo draw. I'd get them form the states for the same or less at least.

I appreciate all the comments. Thanks!

I am leaving Australia in about 6 months time thus I am slowly trying to clear out all my gear, mostly new stuffs which I bought and don't think I will ever get to use. The listed prices are lower than what I paid for but I am ready to accept reasonable offers.

The Ocun draws haven't seen much use, and I ensure that they are in excellent condition.

THey do look pretty new still. The sad thing about having bought gear 5 years ago and not really gotten into climbing and wanting to sell it is that in those 5 years, gear in Australia dropped in price enormously. So you will never recover a reasonable proportion of your original cost. Actually, the other sad thing, is that you haven't got into climbing and thus are selling it. If you halved your prices they'd probably be snapped up by someone needing some basic kit in no time.

I am not giving up climbing (never!), just need to get rid of as much stuffs as possible to reduce my luggage load when I am due to leave Australia in 6 months time.

Thank you for the advice, I have just updated my initial post that prices are negotiable.
Feel free to make an offer!
